Sour cherries are wild black cherries that typically come from the Marche region. They are small, dark and have a one-of-a-kind flavour. Nowadays, they can only be found in the wild countryside, or in the Si.gi. farm that has implemented a recovery plan for endangered, ancient and wild fruit varieties.
These sour cherries taste amazing. Ripe sour cherries are packed together with sugar in jars that are then left in the sun for roughly 40 days. The cherries dehydrate and the sugar melts, resulting in a truly exceptional product with a very concentrated flavour, since it contains no water.
The Si.Gi. farm was born out of the passion of the couple Silvano Buccolini and Giuliana Papa for the forgotten fruits of their land which is located next to Macerata. After having started to grow ancient fruit varieties, Silvano and Giuliana opened a lab where they make the most typical jams and fruit preserves. These jars only contain genuine fruit, simple and natural processing methods, traditional tools and cooking methods - such as boiling in an uncovered pot - and, of course, the flavour of delicacies belonging to a bygone era.
